Being dependent on something unknown that you have no clue how long time it take.. is a very very bad thing that I try to avoid by addressing the big time consuming tasks first. However I was under the impression that this task would max take 48 hours for the DNS to propagate the changes. However just not in my case and now I stuck!
The web hosting company that I switched to has really nice reviews and supports all the features that I need. Now I feel bad about picking them. Domain transfers must be a special case. The web hosting company where I switched from couldn't figure it out neither. So go looking for a third web hosting company probably won't make the situation any better.
Argh, so annoying!
